DPS does however do the special DL for temporary visitors with H1B and student visas, from what I have seen.

Situation 1st, question 2nd.
Situation: I was at the gun show this weekend. I found a gun that I would have liked to purchase. I am a Texas CHL and a Green Card Holder. I had my CHL with me, my drivers license with me, my Green Card number with me but not the actual card and of course cash. At the point of sale the dealer said that the number was not enough he needed to actually see the card.
Question: Based on the situation mentioned did the dealer make an error or was his position correct?

While I was waiting for PR status, I was only able to have a Limited Term Texas Driver's License which expired on the same day as my I-94 Work Document. Once I got my Permanent Resident card (expires in 2022) in November of 2012, I went and updated my DL to regular status. The day after my DL arrived in the mail I went and bought my first handgun in over 30 years (Ruger SR22) and on December 22nd I bought my 2nd one (Ruger SR9C). I'm off to the range again in the morning and I take my CHL course in a couple of weeks on the 19th. Happy to be living here in Texas and looking forward to my CHL course.
Let me say, Welcome Canuck from another Canuck who is enjoying the freedom to own firearms and exercise his right to protect himself, his family and property.
